The Coalition for Fair, Legal and Environmental Transit have filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court against the city’s pilot program for the tech shuttles. Here is a draft of the lawsuit.
“We have observed with our own eyes, and looked at numerous research studies that show the shuttle buses are impacting our communities and our neighborhoods by increasing the cost of housing, and causing rising rents and in fact even heightened eviction activity in areas adjacent to shuttle shops,” she said.
The lawsuit alleges that the city’s pilot project violates California vehicle code by allowing private shuttles to pull into red zones designated as bus stops and state environmental law that requires a review of any project with possible environmental impacts. READ THE FULL STORY HERE.
